The vehicle can be equipped with alternative power plants (electric, diesel and hybrid). The fully electric variant of AKREP II, which was on display at IDEF 2019, is a technology demonstrator with a powerful electric motor integrated to the axle and advanced battery pack. With electric power source at the heart of its design, the AKREP IIe is extremely agile with increased mobility and swiftness. Capable of running at considerably low level of acoustic and thermal signature, AKREP IIe is suited to be an excellent choice for conducting stealthy military operations. The AKREP II family will provide an outstanding solution for modern armies with its superior maneuver capability and agility as well as the outstanding design allowing the integration of various types of armament, weapon stations and alternative power plants.
